Boldy James In Stable Condition After Car Accident In Detroit

Boldy James was involved in a car accident last Monday in Detroit. Contemporaries like Eminem, Bun B, and Westside Gunn sent their regards.

Being rushed to the hospital in critical condition, Boldy, legal name James Clay Jones III, sustained orthopedic injuries and broken neck vertebrae. Undergoing “extensive surgery on his neck," Jones has since been released from the intensive care unit and is now in stable condition.

Also wishing Jones a quick recovery was fellow Detroit rhymesayer Eminem, and other artists including Bun B, Westside Gunn, Statik Selektah, Fly Anakin and Open Mike Eagle.

On Sunday (January 15), Jones posted a message on his Instagram.

“Your prayers are greatly appreciated thanks everyone for all your support the calls text messages I seen them all just keep me in your prayers on this journey as I continue to heal with my family. Thank you god," he wrote.

Initially slated for a release on Monday, January 16, Jones planned to drop physical-only EPADU, produced entirely by Real Bad Man. Coming to vinyl, CD and cassettes, each format of ADU is expected to arrive via RRC Music Co.

“This is a physical release through[.] No digital, no streaming […] no pre-orders,” Jones wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.
